Ok, then what is the experience? I've been meaning to ask this for a long time - tag, you're it. To me, a great part of the Dead experience was their sound. They had a distinct, gorgeous sound. Jerry made bells go off in my head. So what would I be seeing at a DSO show? Or for that matter, a Furthur show? If no one is copying Jerry's sound, then what should I expect? I haven't been to Dead show since '90, but I did see them for 20 years and the thought is sometimes there to catch one of these gigs. Thanks.

I've seen Furthur this past February and The Dead on July 4, 2009 and both shows were a great experience. I heard some of my favorite songs in the world played well and with passion by great musicians who really know and love those grooves. Oh yeah, and I got to boogie and toke freely among the most appreciative audiences I have ever been in.

Good times...

p.s. I've never seen Jerry play but I have listened to GD at least 80% of the time for the last 5 years.

go for the music. I saw them last April in AZ and left quite pleased with the whole thing. They're good.

The experience is the good empovisational music from the GD's repetoire. But of course, in order to enjoy it for what it is, you can't be in the mindset that "Jerry" is what its all about.
